The Drakes Bay Oyster Company is a family farm located 30 miles northwest of San Francisco in Point Reyes. It’s the last operating Oyster Cannery in California and currently produces about 40% of oysters sold in the state. But this family owned business is about to become another victim of government environmentalism run amok.
Land grabs by the Department of Interior should concern every American, not just those of us who love oysters. Science should not be manipulated by government agencies to fit agendas of environmentalism, and large portions of public property should not be closed off from the public and limited to an elite few who have the resources and time to access them.
Congress needs to rein-in the Department of Interior and demand that the decisions made by the agency rely on sound science and with consideration of the economic impact to mankind.
